TOTAL LINK2 COMMUNITY
Total Link2 Community, a local non-profit, has worked with Matthew
and his Circle of Friends to develop YIKES! Beverages Where You
Want Them. Their mission is employment for folks with
developmental disabilities, both in local businesses thru job carving
and micro-businesses for self-employment in community.
Using the model of Customized Employment to Discover Matthew’s
Personal Genius – TL2C helped develop a micro-enterprise that
capitalizes on Matthew’s strengths, preferences and learning style.
Combining Matthew’s enjoyment of soda, handling cash & coins,
heavy lifting and being out greeting new faces. This naturally
developed into the concept of soda vending & delivery business.
Yikes! gives the community beverages where you want them and it
supports Matthew doing real work with real value in his hometown -
enjoying the daily purpose of capping off his soda vending machines.
Better Connections. Better Community.
